If you are looking for a RUNNING-ONLY-CLUB, we might not be quite the ticket - If you are looking for a RUNNING-AND-DRINKING-CLUB, READ ON!
The weekly runs usually start from the hare's abode no later than 7 PM (or whenever and wherever the hare decides) every Wednesday. Between spring and early autumn runs might start from different locations, usually somewhere in the sticks. The hare always sends information about the starting point through the BH3 Yahoo group. Runs during our events always start from different locations.
Please note that hashers DO NOT meet at the old assembly point at the car park behind Comfort Hotel Holberg on Nordnes anymore before heading for the staging point.
If you wish to run with us and you are not sure where the run starts from, you are advised either to:
A typical BH3 run can last up to 2 hours or longer if we have many drink-stops. We only lay one trail, which usually is cunningly laid to cater both for Walkie Talkies and FRBs. Drink stops are welcome sights on our runs, either at a pub or as an improvised mobile affair. After the run, the Hare supplies the beer for the circle and usually provides a light supper for the pack at his or her abode. As we no longer have a Beer Master, Hashers bring their own beer for any after-run drinking on our regular runs.
So far in 2014 we have completed 37 runs and the size of our pack has varied between 4 and 70 hashers with an average of 22 hashers per run.
Hashers can choose to either pay a yearly membership fee of NOK 1300, or pay as you go whenever you show! The first run is free, after that the fee is NOK 40 per run for hashers who elect not to pay the yearly membership fee. All proceeds are put back into BH3 and have usually been used to sponsor the Killer Hill weekend (if need be) and our Christmas run.
In addition the Hare will usually charge NOK 50 to cover the after-run nosh, beer for the circle and any mobile drink stop. Hashers pay for their own beer at drink stops at pubs.

Incidentally, Norwegian visitors may wonder why these pages are not available in Norwegian. -Well, that's just the way it is in the Hashing world - Everything is in English.
